Obama Gets Testy with Freshman Democrat

During a Q&A session with Democrats on Capitol Hill, President Obama offered what Democratic sources said was a testy response to a question about a federal loan guarantee program, with one source in the room telling CNN it "rude and dismissive."

Freshman Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) began his question "by recognizing it was an issue that may be better discussed on the staff level, rather than with the president."

Responded Obama: "You're right. You should have talked to staff about this."

Obama "then said in a testy way to Maloney that at least now he can go back and tell his constituents he stood up to the president for them."
